Children should leave home so as to arrive at school between 8.30 and 8.50 am. The
bell is at 8.55 am when all children are expected to move to classrooms. Learning
starts at 9.00 am. Please assist to keep lateness to a minimum.
If children arrive at school prior to 8.30 am they must wait in the bus bay. Children
should leave or be picked up by 3.30 pm.
There will not be any shortened day for wet weather. Supervised games and other
activities will be organised at wet lunch times.

ADVERTISING IN THE NEWSLETTER
A business card size advertisement can be placed in our newsletter for $60.00. We
publish 20 newsletters a year. These are distributed not only to our community but
nine early learning centres. Some people may want to trial the success of advertising
in our newsletter by paying $15.00 for five inserts (1 term) or $5.00 for one newsletter.
ASSEMBLIES
A full school assembly is held each week (2.25 pm on Fridays). This is a celebration
time where classes, teams and individuals are commended for their achievements.
Assemblies are held outside Room 4 or in the MPR. Parents are welcome to attend
assemblies. General notices are communicated at a short assembly on Mondays at
9.00 am.

ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES
From time to time, students need to have time off school If your child is absent, please
use the school app to notify the office. Alternatively email or call the office on
8495 068 and state your child’s name, class and reason for your child’s absence.
Parents will be phoned for any unexplained absences.
Child absences at Rotokauri School are tracked electronically by the classroom teacher
at 9.00 am and 1.30 pm. Poor attendance at school hinders the social and academic
progress of students. Continued unjustified absence will result in an interview with the
Principal.
It is important for your child’s health and safety that we know where your child is at all
times. Thank you for your co-operation.

                                         9
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Before and after school care is available at Rotokauri School. For further information phone
Atmosphere 0800 CREATORS or email atmosphere@creators.org.nz

CAR PARK
We have tried to make our car park system as simple as possible. There is a drop off zone to
the left of the top car park. Please follow the procedures below when using our car park.
1.    If you are going to leave your car to collect your child from the classroom please do not
      park in the drop off zone. If your child is not already waiting at the drop off zone, please
      park in a car park and wait for them so you do not hold up traffic moving forward in this
      area.
2.    Please continually move to the front of the drop off zone when the opportunity arises
      because of a departing car.
3.    Please don’t encourage your children to run across the car park to your car. They
      should use a pedestrian crossing.
4.    Please do not drop off or pick up children at the pedestrian crossing as this can cause a
      build up of cars behind you on Rotokauri Road.
Please view the map of the carpark on the back page of this booklet.

CELLPHONE POLICY
Students are not allowed cellphones at school. At certain times students may need to bring a
cellphone to school. If this is necessary it must be handed into the office for the day and be
accompanied with a signed note from a parent / caregiver. Students / parents can
communicate through the phone in the office or staffroom. Children must ask a teacher’s
permission before using our phones.
CHILDREN’S DUTIES
Students in the senior classes are required to assist with a duty at the end of a school day. As
long as the child works diligently, the task should take no longer than 5—10 minutes.
Not only does the duty system encourage children to take greater care of the school and foster
pride, but it provides a worthwhile source of income. This is because the Board of Trustees
pays a lump sum to the senior school camp fund each year in recognition of the work done by
the students.
COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS
Regular contact is made between the school and families through different methods.
Our school newsletter is published once a fortnight, on a Thursday. This usually is emailed to
families but a hard copy can be requested.
Our school website features general information about the school, school event calendar and
class webpages.
The School Stream app can be downloaded onto your smartphone to receive instant
notifications of events, reminders and cancellations. This app is available on iPhone, Android
and Internet Explorer pages.
The school Facebook page is a great way to see photos from events and read good news
stories.
Seesaw: The Learning Journey app is used by students and teachers to share their learning
with families. This app is available on iPhone, Android and Internet Explorer pages. Teachers
can provide the log in details for your child.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
Education is a community endeavor and we invite parents and the community to be
involved in school activities. In an effort to enhance Parent—Teacher communication and
facilitate our school’s programmes, volunteers are welcome to help in the classroom, on school
trips and at school events.

                                            10
CONTACT DETAILS
If you change your address, phone number, emergency contacts or there is a
change in your child’s medical condition it is important to advise the office
immediately.

CYCLING TO SCHOOL
It is recommended that children should be ten years of age before biking to school
and it is law that they wear Standard Safety Approved helmets. If your child is
younger than 10, and you are allowing them to ride their bike to school, can you
please inform us in writing. Please provide a lock for your child’s bike.

DENTAL TREATMENT
The dental therapist will be regularly on site at school to screen and treat children.
It is the responsibility of parents with preschoolers to enrol your children and make
an appointment whilst the dental therapist is here. For any urgent dental treatment
required outside this time you may contact the Crawshaw School Dental Clinic
ph: 8497 308.

EVACUATION DRILLS
These are held once a term. All students and visitors meet on the bottom field when
the fire alarm, a continuous bell, is sounded.

FIRST AID AND MEDICATION
First aid material is kept in the sick bay. In the case of serious accidents, two
teachers decide on the action to be taken. Parents are contacted as quickly as
possible. From time to time children require medication. All requests will be on the
Parent Request for School to Administer Medication Form. Prior approval must be
sought / given before any medication is given. Ask for our Medication Policy for
further details and a request form. Mrs Verstraten is in charge of the medication.

FUNDRAISING
Throughout the year the P.T.A. organises a number of fundraising events. Here is a
sample of their past fundraising events:
Disco, Sausage Sizzle, Car Show, Easter Raffle, Oxford Pies, Chocolate selling,
Grant Applications, Tables of Eight, Christmas Calendars, Garden Ramble, Garage
Sale and Family Photos.
The P.T.A also support our camps financially and subsidise shows for the students.
The P.T.A. at Rotokauri School is a very proactive team of dedicated parents. If you
would like to help the P.T.A. out in any way fill out the form on the second to last
page.

                                          11
HOMEWORK
We encourage homework to provide a home - school learning partnership and to

REPORTING
At Rotokauri School our door is always open, especially when it is to discuss your child’s
learning and progress. It is essential that we all have a clear understanding of your child’s
learning needs and progressions, and that we work together to support your child’s
learning.
We use a range of means to communicate individual student’s progress throughout the
year.

Written Reports
You will receive two written reports a year.
An interim report in Term 2 shows your child’s progress against the curriculum levels and
towards their learning goals, as well as identifying next learning steps.
An end of year report is the culmination of a year of learning and sums up your child’s
overall achievement and celebrates what has been learned.
When reporting, it is our aim to clearly show your child’s progress and achievement in
Reading, Writing and Maths, and to let you know of your child’s participation and
achievement in other areas of the curriculum such as Technology, Science, Social
Science, Health, Physical Education and The Arts.

Student Led Conferences
Student Led Conferences are held in Term 3 and give your child the opportunity to have a
conversation about their learning.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB
Twice a term children are given book club forms from which families can select books.
Orders are organised by Sarah Dyer. Online orders, directly to Scholastic are preferred,
otherwise send orders and cash to the school office.

SCHOOL ACTIVITIES DONATIONS
School donations are set at $100 per child ($25 per term), with a maximum of $250 per
family of 3 or more children. This donation provides an essential addition to the school’s
income and provides equipment, important classroom resources, library books, supports
sports teams and aspects of our cultural programme. It does not cover visiting artists,
trips to events outside school etc. Technicraft fees for Years 7 & 8 are separate at
$100.00 per child. If you wish to direct credit funds, the school’s bank details are ASB,
Account number 123152 0116129 00. Please make sure you have your child’s details
and what the payment is for recorded with your deposit. Please also let the school office
know that a payment has been made.

SCHOOL CAMPS
School camps are a very important aspect of our total curriculum programme. Children
find the camps most enjoyable and it is hoped that every child will have the opportunity to
participate in these valuable outdoor educational experiences. We keep the costs for the
camp at the bare minimum. Camp fees can be paid off during the year. You need to
make arrangements for this at the school office.
School camps are in class groups therefore it’s up to individual teachers where and when
camps are held.

                                              13
SCHOOL LIBRARY
The Library has a wide selection of both fiction and non-fiction books which are available
for borrowing by all children in the school. Each class is timetabled for library once a
fortnight. Books are issued and children are responsible for returning them by due dates.
There is also a computer housed in the Library for children to use for searching for
reference materials etc. A letter may be sent home requesting payment for missing
books. The money is used to replace missing books. Please see that your child develops
responsibility for looking after and returning borrowed books.

SCHOOL SHIRTS
The P.T.A. sell school shirts. These shirts are used for some of the school sports teams,
on class trips and for interschool events. They can be purchased from the school office
for $27.50.

SCHOOL STRUCTURE & PROGRESS

SPECIAL PROGRAMMES
Our goal is to recognize those children with special needs / abilities as early as possible.
    Teacher Aide and SENCO time is programmed to assist children with special needs.
    Children with oral language needs are withdrawn for language enrichment.
    New Entrant tests are taken by the SENCO.
    Six Year Net testing is done by Jaimee Carter (SENCO) and then analysed to
     identify students who need further help in reading or writing.
    RTLB’s (Resource Teacher Learning and Behaviour) and RT Lits (Resource
     Teacher of Literacy) may work with teachers to develop programmes to support
     your child’s learning.

STATIONERY
We hold stocks of most stationery items required by pupils. Stationery can be purchased
from the school office from 8.30 am to 9.00 am each day. Stationery requirements for the
next year are sent home at the end of the year to be purchased in readiness for the
following year. There is an online system through OfficeMax for ordering the start of year
stationery.

SUNHATS
Wearing of Rotokauri hats is mandatory. Children wanting to play in an outside
environment in Terms 1 & 4 need to wear their hat. Children who do not wear a hat must
stay under the sunshade. Hats are available for purchase from the office at $18.00 each.

SWIMMING / PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Unless your child has a doctor’s note or a note from yourself, he or she is expected to
participate in Physical Education. Often if they’re too ill for Physical Education, they should
not be at school. Swimming is part of our summer P.E. programme and only very good
reasons, such as skin disease or genuine physical ailments, are accepted for exemption.
